Chris Jericho Says He’s Having Fun Not Working For Vince, Open To More US Shows

Published

ALL IN Chris Jericho

It’s been nearly two weeks now, but the wrestling world is still abuzz after IWGP Intercontinental Champion Chris Jericho’s surprise appearance at All In on September 1st when he dressed up as Pentagon Jr. and attacked Kenny Omega.

The appearance naturally led to more talk about the door being more open than ever for Jericho to work for other companies, especially since he said in months past he wouldn’t work in the United States out of respect for Vince McMahon. Of course, ‘Y2J’ has been rumored to eventually work with IMPACT Wrestling, but as for his stance on working any events moving forward, Jericho had the following to say about working the ROH/NJPW G1 Supercard next April on the most recent edition of Busted Open Radio on SiriusXM:

“There is a whole market now for…you know, hardcore wrestling fans or maybe not even hardcore anymore. There’s a whole strain of fans of wrestling that are excited about all of these other options. I mean…you know, I didn’t think there was any chance I’d be doing All In, but at this point in time sure, there’s a chance. If there’s a match that’s presented to me that’s interesting, if I’m free like, why not? Like, I’m really kind of enjoying this free agency and realizing, ‘Why do I have to just keep it in Japan?’. You know, what if I do want to do more stuff at this stage and you know, not really worrying about what anybody thinks. At this point in time, I think for the first time in my career, in 28 years, October 2nd will be 28 years…I’m kind of completely in control and it’s fun. You know?

I really enjoy not having to run my ideas, that I know are gonna work, through a committee of two or three people or having to wait you know, three hours in front of a door to go pitch it to one guy and hope that he likes it. You know, at this point in time we’re all pros and we know what works and what doesn’t work…and if we’re not sure we can ask other guys and kind of work together. But, in WWE when you work there, one again, you gotta go with whatever it is he wants to go with and you know, that’s fine.

When you work for Vince it’s the way it is, but it’s fun to not work for Vince right now and have some of these other ideas that you kind of explore. It’s (inaudible) working for WWE. Which is fine if you’re working there, get ready for it and deal with it, but right now it’s fun not having to deal with that so we’ll have to see. I mean, nobody’s called me, either way to work there or not work there. I’m on tour with Fozzy until mid-December and that’s the end of the Judas Rising Tour. Then you know, we go back to songwriting, back to recording and in that time is usually when I go back to the WWE, but this time maybe there’s other places I’ll go back to other than WWE.”

Enzo Amore Gets Removed From Survivor Series, Fan Hurt In The Process

Enzo Amore
Former WWE Superstar Enzo Amore appeared in the crowd at Survivor Series!

During tonight’s WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view, former Superstar Enzo Amore unveiled himself in the crowd during the AOP vs. The Bar match, creating quite the stir among the fans.





Now going by Real1 as he looks to get his hip-hop career off the ground, Enzo would remove his hood and go into his old trademark catchphrase before quickly scurrying away from and then submitting to security in the arena:

Bryan Alvarez of The Wrestling Observer would then report that Enzo was taken by security and met with people from WWE as well as the Los Angeles Police Department. After all of this, PWInsider has reported that a stretcher was brought out for a female fan claiming she was injured as Enzo attempted to make his escape. While you can’t make it out in the above video, it does appear as if someone gets knocked down in the video below:

WWE Survivor Series 2018 Rey Mysterio Shane McMahon The Miz Jeff Hardy Samoa Joe Baron Corbin Dolph Ziggler DrewMcIntyre Braun Strowman Finn Balor Bobby Lashley

Results of the fifth match at WWE Survivor Series 2018, Team Raw’s Bobby Lashley (with Lio Rush), Finn Balor, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, and Braun Strowman (accompanied by captain and general manager Baron Corbin) against Team Smackdown’s The Miz (also team captain) Shane McMahon (commissioner), Rey Mysterio, Jeff Hardy, and Samoa Joe.

WWE Survivor Series 2018


The fifth match match of WWE Survivor Series 2018 was the Men’s Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match featuring Team Raw (Bobby Lashley, Finn Balor, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, and Braun Strowman) and Team Smackdown (The Miz, Jeff Hardy, Rey Mysterio, Samoa Joe, and Shane McMahon).

  • Daniel Bryan was originally slated to be a member of Team Smackdown, but was replaced by Jeff Hardy after winning the WWE Championship from AJ Styles.
  • If Team Raw wins, Braun Strowman receives a shot at Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship and a match with Raw General Manager Baron Corbin.
  • Raw has a 3-0 lead so far, so a win here would end the competitive element of the show before the final two Champion vs Champion matches.
  • Drew McIntyre eliminated Samoa Joe in 35 seconds after a Claymore Kick, after avoiding the Coquina Clutch twice.
  • Dolph Ziggler seemed to have Shane McMahon beat at 4:21, but the pinfall was broken up.
  • Seven minutes in, Shane McMahon connected with an elbow through the announce table., hoping to take the big man out of the match.
  • Drew McIntyre, who had already tagged himself in to start the match, refused to tag out to Finn Balor. Balor tagged himself in and kicked McIntyre right in the head.
  • After a highly entertaining “mini-match,” Rey Mysterio pinned Finn Balor with Springboard Frog Splash at 12:09 to even the odds.
  • Shane McMahon connected with Coast To Coast to eliminate Dolph Ziggler at 18:12, giving Smackdown a one man advantage.
  • Shane would go for a second Coast To Coast, this time on Lashley, but was swatted out of the air by Braun Strowman.
  • At 20:44, Strowman pinned and eliminated Jeff Hardy with a powerslam.
  • A powerslam from Braun also eliminated Rey Mysterio at 21:19. Raw now has the one man advantage.
  • A powerslam at 22:23 eliminated The Miz as well, leaving Shane McMahon alone to fight three men.
  • Shane McMahon would fall to a Braun Strowman powerslam at 23:59, giving Raw the win in the match and for the overall Survivor Series.
  • Baron Corbin attacked Braun Strowman after the match.
